Just this week, Yahoo announced it will cut 1,500 jobs. But it's also planning to open two facilities in the Omaha, Neb., area and will be required to create jobs there to receive state tax breaks, reports The Associated Press in a story on Newsvine.com.
It plans to open a data center there and a tech-support center. The call center will employ 50 people; there's no word on employment at the data center, reports bizjournals.com. Nebraska rejiggered its corporate tax-break program to land the Yahoo deal in a competition among 17 states.
